Have talked to Jackie from Secret Coast and they had quite some adventures out there on the coast!
I have hiked the same route last summer and my advice for hiking Tatchu Peninsula is:
Start at Rugged Point (easy landing for float planes) and hike down the coast to Yellow Bluff Bay
Book a pick up with watertaxi from Shorebird expeditions out of Tahsis
Best pickup point is in Yellow Bluff Bay is right at the Y of the Baldwin hiking map
Only obstacle is a black lake at the headland between the bays, but that can be waded.
It works also the other way, drop off at Yellow Bluff and end the hike at Rugged Point.
There is also a rough trail that goes over the infamous surge channel at Sandstone Point, thanks to Jackie now marked with a float!
